WITH THE SFC HIGH PRESSURE STILL ANCHORED OVER THE SOUTHEAST
COAST...SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW AND MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES...TEMPS ARE IN THE
LOW TO MID 70S ALREADY THIS MORNING! THE UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OVER THE
SOUTHEAST WILL KEEP CONVECTION IN THE MIDWEST AND UP INTO THE GREAT
LAKES...KEEPING A DRY FORECAST FOR THE TN VALLEY TODAY. 12Z BMX AND
HSV BUFR SOUNDINGS SHOW DRY AIR ALOFT WITH SOME MOISTURE IN THE LOWER
LEVELS AND WITH THE ABILITY TO REACH THE CONVECTIVE TEMP TODAY WILL
SEE A LITTLE BIT OF CLOUD COVER BUT REMAINING MOSTLY SUNNY THROUGHOUT
THE DAY. VISIBLE SATELLITE CURRENTLY SHOWS A LITTLE BIT OF
ADDITIONAL CLOUD COVER MOVING INTO SOUTHERN MIDDLE TN AND NW AL AS
WELL SO INCREASED THE CLOUD COVER SLIGHTLY FOR TODAY. ADJUSTED THE
DEWPOINT HOURLY TRENDS AS THE PREVIOUS FORECAST WAS SLOW TO MIX OUT
FOR TODAY. OTHERWISE THE REST OF THE FORECAST PACKAGE WAS ON TRACK
FOR TODAY.
